Accessible Mobility Connection

When I visit Detroit I never like to drive downtown, because parking cost a fortune and parking in restricted spots will get your car towed.

Michigan Central Station

  • Yes

Driving in the metro Detroit area is often congested so my idea to make it easier and more affordable for passengers to navigate the congested streets around Michigan Central Station. Ride-sharing 2.0 Mobility Connection Carts that are street legal, pedestrian friendly and only go up to 25 miles per hour. There are a host of activities and events in Downtown Detroit and the surrounding Metro Area, but parking is so expensive and you risk getting your vehicle towed if you don't feed the meter or park in an expensive all day lot or garage. Mobility Connection Carts can take you around the Michigan Central Station to all your destinations regardless if you're in town for business or on vacation Ride-sharing 2.0 Mobility Connection can take you to your location. If you're going to catch the train, DDOT, or SMART you can now use a single pass the DART. Well, Ride-sharing 2.0 Mobility Connection Carts will except unused Dart passes as payment for your Mobility Connection ride-sharing experience. 

Unique Challenge Code
